Seven days

One girl

No second chances

Madeline Hart is a rising star in Britain's governing party: beautiful, intelligent, driven by an impoverished childhood to succeed. But she is also a woman with a dark secret: she is the lover of Prime Minister Jonathan Lancaster. Somehow, her kidnappers have learned of the affair, and they intend to make the British leader pay dearly for his sins. Fearful of a scandal that will destroy his career, Lancaster decides to handle the matter privately rather than involve the British police. It is a risky gambit, not only for the prime minister but also for the operative who will conduct the search.

You have seven days, or the girl dies.

Enter Gabriel Allon—master assassin, art restorer and spy—who is no stranger to dangerous assignments or political intrigue. With the clock ticking, Gabriel embarks on a desperate attempt to bring Madeline home safely. His mission takes him from the criminal underworld of Marseilles to an isolated valley in the mountains of Provence to the stately if faded corridors of power in London—and, finally, to a pulse-pounding climax in Moscow, a city of violence and spies where there is a long list of men who wish Gabriel dead.

From the novel's opening pages until the shocking ending when the true motives behind Madeline's disappearance are revealed, The English Girl will hold readers spellbound. It is a timely reminder that, in today's world, money often matters more than ideology. And it proves once again why Daniel Silva has been called his generation's finest writer of suspense and foreign intrigue.

    DaSilva just keeps getting better and better. He has obviously set the stage for further adventures with Allon's long expected and awaited elevation to head of department. English Girl is full of twists and turns and hard to pit down, finished in 2 sittings.
  • Another hit

    By Teerob
    Silva has done it again! This is a great read with so many twists and turns it will make you dizzy. Fast paced and thrilling the whole way, it is a page turner. The use of the characters is amazing and the English girl is a character not soon forgotten. This book, as well as other Silva books is a must read.
  • Much too familiar

    By NiagaraMichael
    The latest Gabriel Allon adventure is much too familiar. It lacks fresh excitement, and overall, the story hasn't a lot of energy. The same tics apply to the standard group of characters we've seen in the other Allon books. Mr. Silva needs to kill off one or two of Allon's team, who are introduced as if they have been copied and pasted from the other books. The author needs to add some new characters, especially in Israel and on the assassination team. Can Shamron be any more boring? Give Gabriel and Chiara a baby, even if they have to adopt one. This novel is like the fictional equivalent of treading water. Same old, same old.
